Did You Know?
Three California laws took effect January 1, 2007 that benefit animals:
Dogs cannot be tethered to a stationary object for more than three hours during a 24-hour period. If tethered, the dog still must have a good range of motion.
Pets cannot be left in vehicles in a dangerous situation whether from the heat or the cold. Animal control officers are now permitted to break into a vehicle to rescue at-risk animals after trying to locate the owner. Dogs tied in the back of pickups in extreme hot or cold weather are also covered under the new law.
Felony-level jail time now applies for animal fighting convictions.
